The announcement was made on Monday 18 June in Montreal and it is the City of Bordeaux that has been selected to host the 2020 edition of the Robocup, the robot world cup.
Bordeaux Events will be hosting this major international competition at the Bordeaux Exhibition Centre with a specific layout of 30 000 m2.
Over six days, 5 000 robots will be facing off in several disciplines, such as industrial logistics or emergency rescue, with 45 countries present, 3 500 participants and 40 000 visitors.
The economic impact of the event is estimated to be at least €7 million for the Bordeaux metropolitan area, mainly in the hotel and catering sectors.
